Permanently protecting large, mature forests is a faster and cheaper way to stabilize Earth's climate than complex carbon capture and storage schemes, and more effective than planting new trees.
Researchers are developing ways to lock captured CO2 into cement. It could help rebuild America’s crumbling infrastructure and deal with climate change at the same time.
An appeals court described the EPA's effort as 'a series of tortured misreadings' of US law.
Our research marks the first case of both normal diamonds, as well as Londaleite, being produced in a lab setting using only intense pressure.
Similar arrangements already support the National Park Service, the National Institutes of Health and other federal agencies.
Conservation and development scheme REDD+ has manifested as a series of models, which increases its perceived success and enables it to continue despite not delivering on its wide-reaching promises.
With trees infested by the emerald ash borer deemed essentially worthless, a team of designers wanted to see if the decaying wood could be repurposed as a building material.
In general, the larger the tree, the more carbon it stores.
The findings will help determine the age of whale sharks, protecting the endangered animals into the future.
Insect populations are falling as what they eat becomes more like iceberg lettuce and less like kale.
An innovative method of carbon capture and storage could substantially reduce the emission of small industries while using geothermal energy to heat homes and thus replacing fossil-fuel energies.
About 24,000 square miles of Amazon rainforest have been deforested over the last decade.
Rainforest species didn't co-evolve with fire – and even a low intensity wildfire can kill half the trees.
The species which surround a tree in a forest make up the character of its neighbourhood. Good neighbours can make forests resilient to climate change.
The vast majority of climate scientists agree that rising CO₂ is driving climate change, yet barely 50% of the public agrees. Did scientists get the story wrong? No, as the fossil record makes clear.
By enacting a legislative framework to achieve carbon neutrality, France and the United Kingdom are making a difference in the fight against climate change.
A nanotube innovation using waste plastic could help solve one of the world's energy problems.
South Africa will introduce the carbon tax which should be used to ensure benefits to poor communities.
Don't let stock markets reports convince you that when the markets are up, all is well in the world. When the market is up, carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is up, and the global environment is down.
Recent extreme rains and weather in the Midwest are causing a multitude of problems in the topsoil that much of the nation's food supply relies on.
